Chimeka Garricks was born in Dublin, and raised in Port Harcourt (the city which, like many first loves, still inexplicably holds his heart, and is the setting for most of his writing). He writes short stories while pretending to work on his second novel: (his first, ‘Tomorrow Died Yesterday’, received rave reviews). His stories have appeared in Juked, ALTARWORK, and The Kalahari Review. Music is his muse, and he titles his stories after songs. He would rather be a DJ but lawyering, laziness and life have gotten in his way. He lives with his wife and three children in Lagos.
